Where should Edin Dzeko move to if he was to leave Man City?
The Telegraph's Mark Ogden reports that Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini has stated that the forward, who is often overlooked, will stay put despite drawing much attention from fellow Premier League side Arsenal as well as German side Borussia Dortmund.
Dzeko joined the Manchester side in 2011 for £27 million, but has become a bit-part player since the arrival of £16.4m Spaniard Alvaro Negredo.
The Bosnian's last Premier League start came back in September, when City lost 3-2 to Aston Villa, and has been reduced to substitute appearances as Sergio Aguero and Negredo have formed a 28-goal partnership
Ogden reports Pellegrini as saying:
I put my trust in him before the season and I have just as much trust in him now. It is very important for this club to have a good squad because we have a lot of games to play from now until April and, if we want to win trophies, we need important players.
Maybe at the moment he is not playing as much as he would like, but he remains an important part of the squad.
It's hard to see Dzeko regaining a starting berth in the City squad and, though Pellegrini is reluctant to let him go, it may be just a matter of time before the 27-year-old heads for greener pastures.
